I've got to move somewhere that doesn't have dangerous mythical creatures besides me one of these days.

Sep. 9th, 2018


For all that he is a hunting dog from the 16th century, my Greyhound seems to have decided he should adapt more closely to the customs of his modern day, racing-bred cousins.

By which I mean he refuses to get out of bed from roughly 7:00 in the evening until dawn. I'm a vampire. This is not how vampires work.

Guess the portal doesn't like Christian Kane's face, cause Jake's gone too.

Anyone got any projects they need an assist on? I need a distrac-

I have one vital question.

Where's Batman in all of this? If you ask me, we've been cheated.

Okay, so I can appreciate how clingy you guys are being right now, I do have to go see a lady for a commission she hired me for a few months ago. Am I going to this meeting alone or are there going to be two shadows following me?

Also, my friend Ron wants to let us give his nerdy girlfriend a tour of the place. Are you guys okay with letting them come by at some point? I'll just keep it to the superficial levels.

Thanks to everyone that came to look for me yesterday! Henry's nose sniffed me out - I had gotten trapped in an artifact. All good now!

[Ezekiel and Jake's friends]

Anyone heard from Jones today? He was supposed to resurface in time for the barbecue and I can't reach him.

Attention portal-napped members of Tumbleweed.

Team America House is having a BBQ on Sunday. Some of you may know that we all came from a previous alternate reality where we were taken through a portal to Hawaii. As such, a couple of us have become obsessed with Kālua. Cooking in an underground oven. On the menu: pig. Don't worry, there will be vegetarian options on regular BBQ too.

Come join us Sunday at 1pm at our house for eats, and watch Bucky work his cooking skills.

There will be lots of food and music, so if you're free, come stop by!

Blackpoint people, this is non-optional for you unless you have to work or experience some sort of life crisis. Or you're Henry, because I know I can't win that fight.

Told this is how we're supposed to introduce ourselves. Eliot. Not a fan.

Jul. 1st, 2018


I think it is beyond time that I reach out and make introductions. My name is Elizabeth Swann and I arrived in your company just a few days ago. I've been giving myself some time to adjust to this new set of circumstances. I find this has been a far easier adjustment than my initial leap through time. One year is certainly easier than a few centuries. My friend has informed me that there are some among you who were also in our community in our previous reality but he says that number is small. So, my question to you is, are there others who were pulled from their home time and placed in a situation similar to this but prior to your arrival here?

As it were, I am rather disappointed that my ship has not followed me to this reality but my apartment did. I would gladly trade the apartment for the Black Pearl any day. Of course, it would be useless without water to dock it in, but I am not accustomed to being away from it for such a length of time and it has only been four days.

(Trigger warning for drug use in comments)


Last week, when the world turned into a faerie land for a day, there was a faerie man who followed me about and expressed his undying love for me. He simply wouldn't take no for an answer. It was flattering at first but then grew a bit irritating. Take note men, following a woman about is not a way to get them to love you.

Apparently I should have taken him up on his offer. He was actually quite handsome. I wonder what faerie men are like in bed.

Albus has decided that he would prefer that he and I merely be friends.

Glad I missed those pixie bastards.

If anyone needs me, I'm going diving in the Library's deep archives. I'll be back in a day or two.

So about las-


There was a bridge troll telling people not to cross its bridge and picking fights with those who didn't like being told what to do, right?

Because that was fun.


There are bridge trolls.

This town is too punny.

Waves, you'll be happy to know I got a job finally. I won't be mooching off you anymore. You're looking at a cashier/stock/sales rep for Needful Things. Something fishy about the guy who runs it. People say he practically gives things away. Not sure if I hope they're cursed or not. Figured it'd be a good place to keep an eye on things, and hey get paid for it too.

link trigger warning: gross body lesion stuff

Ah. Well. Another rare human cowpox case. It's not at all surprising that along with measles and smallpox, this one would crop up as well. At least it's not as severe as other illnesses that our unfortunate stubborn members of this society have brought because of their ignorance and refusal to see the truth that's right in bloody front of them.

First I am removed from Chicago and then I am forced to contend with additional memories. There was a reason I never watched our show. I didn't want those memories I can adjust to new scenery, but this is giving me a headache. I need to At least the modern technology isn't as confusing as the first time I encountered it. Though, what does this mean for my

Has anyone seen a Miss Elizabeth Swann? If someone might direct her to me, I would be grateful.

[...] Ah, yes. I suppose introductions are in order. My name is Victor Frankenstein.

Soon enough the Americans will host their Fourth again, and I was wondering if anyone would care to get together and have our own little gathering. One where there's a lot less fireworks.

Jun. 9th, 2018


I see congratulations are in order for forming your own country. It is a terrible shame that I should arrive here in the New World along with Mrs. Quigley's home, but no Mrs. Quigley to speak of, nor anyone else who previously resided there. It is a fine and most reputable house, visited often by those with of discerning tastes. Now there only vacancies to be filled. Whatever am I to do?

There is still plenty of wine to drink, the vintage most agreeable in my time, though I suspect might be a curiosity in yours. It would be absolutely wicked of me to indulge without offering. Therefore I have no choice but to cordially invite all of you to my home on the Eve of the Thirteenth, which I find appropriate given my circumstances, at [address].

If you are a gambler, I would be most honored to host you at my table.

Please come in your most fashionable. I am curious to see more of what people are wearing these days. I still have much to learn of your world and am grateful for the company.

To new friendships,
Miss Charlotte Wells

Post ball(slash whatever Friday night plans you have) pancake breakfast bar tomorrow, Team America House. 10:30. You're all welcome. Team America House, your butts will be dragged out of bed if you're not already awake.

To those that came out to the opening of Once Upon a Pie - thank you and keep coming back to give me more of your money.

For those of you that didn't come out - what's wrong with you? My apple pie is delicious.

We're open from 9 AM to 5 PM every day, except for Sundays. We're closed Sundays. We offer catering services in addition to our baked goods and coffee, as well and fresh ingredients for more of the magically inclined in a special section in the back.

If any of you would like a job, I'm looking for cashiers and servers. And someone to overlook the magical section in the back when I'm not around.

It appears as though my gift has finally arrived: my horse from back home! I was so thrilled to receive the call from the base that she was here. I rode her home, though unfortunately my backyard here is not nearly as vast as it was back home and I've nowhere to keep her. There were a few people who mentioned owning or running ranches before. Would anyone be able to give me an estimate on how much it would cost to board a horse?

DM to Mycroft
Have you seen that there is going to be another ball? I'm quite excited. Albus has asked me again.

DM to Albus (added)
Did you like what I wore to the ball last time? If you'd prefer, I can try something that might be a bit more contemporary to this time period.

The portal evidently saw fit to deliver one my favorite hounds from when I was still human.

I don't think adjusting to the modern era will cause him much difficulty.

I know people are a lil all over the place because of the whole power swap thing that's happened to some, but is anyone up for heading to NYC this Friday to go dancing?

If you're worried about powers going outta control my offer to help with that still stands.

So Friday. NYC. Dancing. Who's in?

May. 14th, 2018


I need a new show to binge watch. Real Housewives can only get me so far.


I imagine someone is growing hungry by now and quite interested in certain pulse points. Speak to me if so. As far as I'm aware, I'm the only vampire here who's actually alive, biologically speaking. Ergo, you should still have a heartbeat and need to breathe.

May. 13th, 2018


Alright, so I thought it was a fluke, because I'm a very handsome man, but this is the second day in a row where I've been getting marriage proposals while waiting in line at Starbucks.

Did someone hit me with a lust potion?

May. 9th, 2018


I've been a bit of a hermit since I've gotten here. Or really, I blame settling into a new place.

Anyway, I am in desperate need of some new friends, since I can't just hang around my sister, her kids, and her boyfriend all the time, as great as they are.

What's a good place to get a couple of drinks around here? Because what says new friends like getting drunk together? Or not getting drunk, whatever anyone's up to.


You may proceed to open your bottles of champagne. I have a new publisher, and will have a book on the shelves in a few months' time.

Plan B was to go back to England, have myself declared legally alive, and claim my inheritance with interest, but I don't think the royal family has a sufficient budget for that.

May. 4th, 2018


I'm not hosting a Kentucky Derby party, because to do so would require I provide you with food and alcohol, but you are welcome to watch the race with me tomorrow.

I'll also be viewing the likely pathetic coverage of the Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event on Sunday. Again, my door is open.

May. 2nd, 2018


I need a new breakfast place, I can't deal with the sorry excuse for pancakes JJ's has. Recommendations?

And has anyone seen this asshole around? He answers (when he feels like it) to Kap.

Thank you for letting me stay at the townhouse and thank you for letting me grumble at wood on your rooftop. I should be done your rooftop retreat within the week.

So The past couple of weeks I've been working on reworking my go to outlets for when things get frustrating and for when I can't handle a situation anymore. I think I've set up some strong methods with dealing with this that don't involve spiraling down bad paths, so I'm ready to go home and resume my life.

I'm going to work on finding a job next, so if you have any recommendations, hit me.

If you guys are ready for it, I'd like to come back home.

How, exactly, does a luxury condo from Vancouver wind up inside of a single-family home in Texas?

Not that I mind. It saves me from buying new curtains. And it's a relief to gain some distance from the rest of my kind.

[Filtered to the PH Group]

I don't like this situation with the missing military.

Apr. 2nd, 2018


This is my first port of call since I've arrived, and I must say I'm excited. The names of the places sound very Hawaiian, however I'm at a loss as to what a Pokemon is.

Apr. 1st, 2018





I don't suppose anyone on board is qualified to conduct Easter Mass.

My mother and father were Irish immigrants. Happy St. Patrick's Day, from the most Irish person on this boat.

Do you have plans tonight?
[Johnny Storm]
So which fair maiden will you be escorting Saturday night?

Mar. 11th, 2018


This stop is making me particularly miss my son. It reminds me of all the stories I used to read to him...

... Anyway, I've had a lovely time. Camelot is like a dream. It's nice to be able to experience the Middle Ages without all of the general uncleanliness that went along with the time period.

Tomorrow I'm heading to Agrobah as that's a culture I've never experienced before. Is riding a camel anything like riding a horse?

DM to Henry Fitzroy
You looked magnificent at the tournament and took your loss with grace, even if I personally think you were robbed.

Mar. 9th, 2018


backdated to first day of port

Filter: Henry Mills
I don't know all the places you plan on going or if you want to go at all, considering.. I guess, your history with this place? Or family's history?

I think I have to check something out. This is the first time I stepped onto land where I can actually send the existence of an Underworld.

Filter: Nico di Angelo + Anakin Solo
Where are you guys planning on exploring?

Mar. 8th, 2018


It's International Women's Day. Does that count out here? Don't ask me how I remember. Marlo made sure I did.

So go respect the hell out of a woman.

Mar. 4th, 2018


I need a night out, where I'm being told I'm pretty by a beautiful person and being plied with good wine. Multiple beautiful people encouraged and welcomed.

EDIT: Captain America (the single one), your presence & services are required at the Meridian Lounge tonight.

I wonder how long before the steakhouse will be up and running again, if at all. It would be nice to have a nice meal there again before the cruise ends.

Maybe I'll sit in on karaoke night. No, I won't be singing

[Added later]
For those who are of royal descent, my friend Cassie and I are curious if royal food tasters were real or is that a myth?


It hasn’t taken long but I already miss the green of Middle Earth, the hills and valleys and the horses in Rohan. The air was so clean and fresh. Being on this ship reminds me of when we used to cross the Atlantic to visit my mother’s family. It got dreadfully boring after a day or two.

DM to Mycroft
If I’ve told a vampire that I’d like to sleep with him, that must mean I’ve gone mad, haven’t I?

Added later:
DM to Henry Fitzroy
Oh my God, you mean to drink my blood while we’re having sex, don’t you?

I applaud our most recent hosts on the complete absence of dead giant squid.

The veritable buffet of intimate company was also most welcome.

Mar. 1st, 2018


Happy birthday!

Feb. 23rd, 2018


Thank you.

Let's have dinner our last night here. Just the two of us. You can catch me up on what you've seen and done. And if there's anything you have left, we can go do it before then.

Any Tony updates?

Feb. 22nd, 2018


A walk in the sunlight in Middle Earth.

That's something I never imagined would come about.

Feb. 21st, 2018


I've been bounced around so much that I have no idea who I'm blaming anymore for this. Just tell me we're not headed for the Triangle on this thing.


Feb. 12th, 2018


These Elven robes are of such a fine quality material that I wish to buy several of them to take back with me to the ship. The rental one, while the most beautiful, also has given me pointy ears, which I cannot say I am fond of. I look dreadful.

I think I'm going to visit Rohan, as it sounds lovely and there are apparently horses to be ridden. Does anyone else ride?
